We have reached the maximum number of bookings for this event that the house can cope with - any received after Oct 4 will go on a waiting list in case of cancellations. There is the option of foreshore camping however and joining us for just the walking on the two days - talk to Di Ryan if you want to pursue this option.

This is a wonderful 30km grade 4 coastal walk on the ocean side of the Mornington Peninsula which we will complete over two days on the Friday and Saturday .  We will stay at a house at 29 Waratah Street Rye Vic 3941 on the Mornington Peninsula on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights - as its small we will need to be prepared for camping in the backyard - will update this event with more details as they become available. Thanks to Ania and Artur Sekula for providing the photos of their peninsula walk below. For walk grades click here. and for what to bring click here.
